My Favorite Outdoor Toys For Kids

Eva Martino shares her favorite Outdoor Toys for Kids

I shared my Summer Plans this week, and we will mostly be Staycationing! As a result, I’ve been thinking a ton about the ways I can have fun with the kids at home and in our yard. We love spending time outdoors, and as a result I have found lots of great outdoor toys over the years. I know there are so many families out there who plan to spend most of their summer outside and in the yard just like us – and so I thought it would be the perfect time to do a roundup of some of my favorite outdoor toys for kids!

Marlowe and Major love to either be splashing around with some kind of water toy or riding their scooters. I also have gotten hours of fun out the stomp rockets I’m linking below. I figure that the money I’m spending on Outdoor toys is vastly less than the money I would have spent on trips, amusement parks, and camps this year. And I hope that by having some great times in our own backyard we can make memories that the kids will hold on to forever. Let me know if there are any other great outdoor toys you love that aren’t on this list!

Inflatable Unicorn Sprinkler


We’re big fans of unicorns here at Casa Amurri-Martino, so obviously unicorn sprinklers are a must!

Melon Ball Jumbo Sprinkler


If you’re going to buy a ball-shaped inflatable sprinkler, buy a watermelon ball-shaped inflatable sprinkler!

Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Grub Scouts Sprinkler


If your kiddos are on the younger side, this is a great sprinkler option to keep them cool but not overwhelm them with harsh water pressure!

Little Explorers Kids Pop Up Play Tent


This camping play set is great (and might I add: shaded) way to keep kids occupied during the hot summer months!

Lifetime Geometric Dome Climber Play Center


If your kids are active like mine, then having safe things to climb in the yard is a must!

Little Tykes Jump ’n Slide Inflatable Bounce House


This bounce house is the best investment ever! We used to keep ours in the basement at our house and now we keep it outside during the summer months for the kids to get the last bursts of their energy out before bed!

Jetaire Camper Playhouse


This little camper playhouse is the cutest!

PACEARTH Saucer Tree Swing


What could be more nostalgic than a tree swing!

Toyvelt Kids Golf Club Set


Teach the kids how to golf!

Melissa & Doug Sunny Patch Snappy Turtle Lawn Mower


What better way to teach the kids how to mow the lawn than with a lawn mower that snaps like a turtle? LOL!

Lydaz Bubble Mower


Speaking of lawn mowers, push this one and it creates bubbles!

Green Toys Outdoor Wagon in Orang


This wagon is great because it can be left outside in the rain and it wont rust!

American Plastic Toys Kids Outdoor Slide


This slide is durable enough to withstand the outdoors, and folds up nicely to store during the winter!

Little Tykes Easy Store Large Slide


This is our favorite slide! (It’s the one in the photos!)

Step2 Rain Showers Splash Pond Water Table


This two-story water table will keep the kids occupied for hours!

Step2 Splash n Scoop Bay Sand and Water Table


And for all you sand table fans, this one is both sand table AND water table!

Stomp Rocket Stunt Planes


Stomp rockets: your kids new favorite thing to send flying into the air!

Go Sports Bullseye Bounce & Tri Toss Cornhole


Gotta love a good ‘ole game of cornhole!

Peg Perego John Deere Ground Force Tractor with Trailer


Major got this for his birthday last year and we love it!

    Great list! We love lots of those items too and will have to check out some that we don’t have! Splash mats are also tons of fun and so much easier than kiddie pools!
